Ex SNOW LION (ExSL17) is the Tri Service Scotland Ski Championships, which takes place in the Cairngorm Mountain Range, Aviemore, Scotland over the period 24 Feb – 5 Mar 17. Through the development of the Tri Service Scottish Sports Board, ExSL17 is open to all Tri-Service Members across 51st Inf Bde & HQ Scotland, AOR (Tri Service members include: Reservists, UOTC, ACF/CCF and Regular Forces).
Team Compositions. Team compositions for both Alpine and Snowboarding are 4 per unit with 3 to count. Units may enter male, female or mixed teams. If teams are of mixed Regular and Reserves, they are only eligible to compete for prizes in one of those categories based on the majority of that team.
